Redmond Productions Inc’s RPI Advanced Technology Group, San Francisco, the company with the virtual reality glasses (CI No 2,460) has given a few more details of the product, a direct-connect VGA head-mount display unit for consumer and commercial virtual reality games, theatrical entertainment and tele-video applications. The display area is only 1 wide, which coincides with the size of ordinary glasses, and rather than convert VGA graphics to low-resolution NTSC television signals, the RPI display takes pure 640 by 480 VGA direct from the computer; no converter is needed and users can run VGA monitor and headset concurrently from the same board. The – presently monochrome only – product is offered only OEM, with a promise to beat any other vendor’s price-performance.
